PE4Trans


Public Engagement of Sustainable Public Transport

PE4Trans addresses the issue of potential for improvement of public transport policies by including citizens to the process of design and implementation of sustainable transport strategies and plans with the view to change peoples’ mobility habits and routines incorporating findings of behavioural sciences. Regions and cities across Europe invest significant funds in public transport infrastructures, introduce incentives and regulations as well as information campaigns with the view to reduce carbon footprint by stimulating peoples more pro-environmental behaviours.


The main objectives of PE4Trans are:

P4Trans partners adopt the approach “for the people, by the people and with the people” as a guiding principle for the possible policy improvements, which go in two directions:

  • Influencing the citizens’ behavioural change using knowledge and good practices of environmental solutions based on economy, sociology and psychology developments to stimulate people towards more sustainable routines and habits.
  • Influencing the citizens’ behavioural change using knowledge and good practices of environmental solutions based on economy, sociology and psychology developments to stimulate people towards more sustainable routines and habits.
  • Launching in the participating territories transferable mechanisms of public engagement in policy makings processes.

A significant change that project will bring is the transferable frames for dialogue and mutual learning process involving experts to bring state of the art insights and provide feedback, policy makers shaping their short and long term agendas and citizens who will integrate their hopes and concerns, viewpoints and ideas adding significant value to the process. Specific solutions will be elaborated in a participatory way in each partner territory enhancing the use of sustainable mobility solutions and contributing to substantial reduction of the carbon footprint, both policy-makers and inhabitants benefitting from the outcomes.
